Year 5 Autumn 2 2020 smiley


We hope that you have all enjoyed the half term break and are looking forward to the second half of the Autumn term.  This term there will be lots of handwashing and making sure we are wiping our own areas clean; just like last term!


Take a look at our overview for Autumn 2 under 'What we will be learning' to see what you will be recapping and moving on to! Over half term, it has been fantastic to see so many of you logging onto Google classroom and we can't wait to see your projects. Another big well done to those children who have been practising spellings on Spelling Shed and times tables on TT Rock stars!


Routines and Homework

You will have PE every Friday and must come into school in your PE. Remember to wear you school jumper or cardigan over it and a coat if it is cold. You will receive homework every Monday and it should be returned by Friday of the same week. It can be completed on Google Classroom instead if you wish.  The homework will be:

-English task,

-Spelling practise,

-Math task,

-Times table practice

You will also be given two reading books. One will be a levelled book to help improve your reading fluency and one will be a reading for pleasure book. You should be reading something- even just a paragraph every night will help improve your fluency. Remember that the more you read, the more you know, and the more you know, the more places you'll go!!!



Our Vehicle text in English is 'The Errand'. Have you ever heard of it? It is very important that you keep up your basic skills by reading as much as possible and practising your grammar, punctuation and spellings. Also the more that you practise your times tables, the quicker you will be able to access other areas of math. We will be looking at place value, addition and subtraction and statistics this half term. 


We hope that you are well rested and enjoyed the break.
